(This is a Groundwork Presents: that will be going live at the end of February 2021.)
A journey AcrossDownUnder-UnderPasses, subways and through some of Newport’s in between Zones – places still free of the ever present surveillance camera. Spaces often over-looked ; ‘Negative Spaces’ that don’t invite lingering or loitering. Spaces that are moved through rather than stayed in. Spaces that are home for some, dumping grounds for others.
Directional pull, stillness, fitting in, not fitting in.
BEing someplace ‘other’,
over-shadowed by development and neglect. Finding the gaps….
A mapping, a reMapping, the body’s mapping, a conversation with the air.
It is in the spirit of Fun, Curiosity and Freedom to roam.
It is also a nod to the invisible, the over-looked and the OuTsider.
… Let’s call her Hoody.
Hoody is a character that came into BEing some ten years ago-ish….‘ish’ because of the elastic nature of Time.
As she moves through time, time moves through her…in the folds of the world, unFolding, folding, unfolding….
She is anonymous, faceless, a body with conflicting narratives, sometimes FuLL, other times, Empty –
inhabiting ‘a small region of the continuous variation in the wider ChAoSmos we like to call the world’.
